But make no mistake about it, he is handing the keys to the White House to a man who fuelled the conspiracy theory, the birther movement, that questioned the legitimacy of his place in the White House. That must be extraordinarily painful and makes this transition of power all the more remarkable.

Related reading: WhyAlternativeMedia is the New Mainstream While the battle between the two has steadily been in progress within underground circles for many years, the beef has carried over into the forefront of collective consciousness and is currently dominating the mainstream airwaves. Now more than ever, the conflict between the two is visible for all to see, as the massivefake newspublic relations operation to combat alternative media is well under way in the mainstream press, claiming that anything that goes against the establishment narrative is “fake news.” Some of the claims being thrown out there are that these alternative news sources are all part of a Russian propaganda campaign; that the people propagating them consist of alt-right nut job conspiracy theorists; and my personal favorite that they are a bunch of 15 year old Internet trolls that sit in their basement in Macedonia and spread fake news for shits and giggles, as if exposing stories like PizzaGate is pleasurable.

NBC News A weekend of protests over the inauguration and presidency of Donald Trump began Thursday night with police in the nation's capital using pepper spray on protesters demonstrating outside a pro-Trump event. Hundreds rallied outside the National Press Club, where the event billed as DeploraBall was being held on the eve before Trump is sworn in as president Friday. Some demonstrators set off smoke devices in the middle of the crowd, and police in riot gear blocked entrance to the event. Impeach the predatory president, read one of two messages projected onto the building's façade. Crowds chanted Nazi scum at those who entered. Some of the protesters were with the group Refuse Fascism. Police said they arrested a 34-year-old D.C. man near the event and charged him with conspiracy to commit an assault and were looking for two others, NBC Washington reported.

According to people who have been briefed on such technologies, the nation’s spy satellite capabilities, while not quite at the read-the-newspaper-over-your-shoulder level implied by movies like Enemy of the State, are vastly more advanced than the public realizes. There are also a number of classified aircraft with unique capabilities (including a growing number of drones) whose existence has never been acknowledged; one such helicopter, a stealth version of the Black Hawk, was only made public when it crashed during the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. Such aircraft are often tested at Nevada’s Area 51—where conspiracy theorists claim the government holds its fleet of captured UFOs—and experts estimate that there are upward of a dozen aircraft that the United States has never publicly acknowledged, the modern successors of earlier secret programs like the U-2, the SR-71 spy plane and the B-2 stealth bomber.

.. CANT WAIT TO SAY PRESIDENT @realDonaldTrump.” The demonstrators also brought with them a projector, used to project two messages onto nearby buildings: Impeach the predatory president and bragging about grabbing a woman's genitals. Washington’s NBC affiliate reported that there were no arrests related to the protests, but one man was arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit an assault. Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators are set to protest Trump's inauguration this weekend. One group, DisruptJ20, expects its members to cause delays at checkpoints going into the inauguration, according to the Associated Press.

By Juan Cole | (Informed Comment) | Trump's cabinet has no Latinos, the first time that minority, which comprises 18 percent of Americans, is absent for twenty-five years. Trump famously accused Mexican-Americans of being the worst people, including in their ranks rapists and drug dealers and having been deliberately sent across the border by the Mexican government in what he apparently, bizarrely, views as a mammoth conspiracy. Trump and his Neofascist counselors are wounded white men, who see Latinos and their immigration to the United States as a challenge to white dominance that must be stopped and reversed. Never mind that whiteness is a construct, and that Benjamin Franklin even excluded Germans like Trump from the category. And never mind that Latino immigration saved the US from aging and losing population (these are real problems besetting e.

SOT Margarita Simonyan, Editor-in-Chief of RT: “In general, we try to not believe in conspiracy theories, but of course, it seems strange that on the same day three of the largest social networks suddenly present claims to us and ask questions that have never been asked before. At the same time, several major US TV channels, the American media have requested about big interviews, in which they, too, are trying to portray us as rights and freedom stranglers and propagandists, who have the American democracy by the throat. I hope so much that this is just a coincidence. I really hope that they do not pave the way to disable us from broadcasting and being on popular platforms." The Editor-in-Chief of Russia Today (RT), Margarita Simonyan, expressed her concerns over the national TV network temporarily having been blocked from posting on the Facebook social networking website in Moscow, Thursday.
